Onsite Search Engine

Can anyone suggest a third party search engine plugin for PineGrow? Or any other PHP search engine script I can employ on my sites? I’ve found several but can only implement them using an app like Dreamweaver - haven’t figured out how to use them within PineGrow’s environment since many require a database on the backend.

Hi @randyrie, have you thought about implementing
Google Search on your website ?

A La This?


(free version as ads - it didnt use too)

Yes. It is what I currently use but can you configure Google to only index your site and display ONLY your site search results? I believe Google used to permit this.

Maybe it’s fun and educational to build it yourself!

This is a video tutorial (6 hours), how to build a search engine/function and index/crawl the site/pages you want to index. (code examples and project files are included).

You can style and integrate it anyway you want, to match the style/design you want it to be.
